Sunday the 1st of September 1940

Day: Multi-formation airfield attacks again, involving some 450 aircraft of Luftflotte 2. Heavy damage was caused at Biggin Hill by 120 aircraft knocking out the operations room seting ablaze the armoury. Detling and Eastchurch were also hit badly with lesser damage at Lympne and Hawkinge.

Night: Night attacks settle into familiar pattern of several concentrated raids on specific targets (Liverpool and South Wales), backed up by single raiders to keep up a continuous bombardment.

Losses: Luftwaffe 14 : Fighter Command 14.

Weather: It was fair with light cloud early, dispersing slowly.
